Morning ladies, today I thought I'd share with you some ideas for last minute gifts from The White Company.  As I don't know about you but no matter how prepared I think I am there's always that last minute panic when you think you've finally finished your Christmas shopping & you receive a wonderful & total surprise gift.  Which in turn sees you manically routing around for an appropriate gift at home to reciprocate, as I don't know about you but it generally happens after the deadline for Christmas delivery has passed!

Having been caught out several times in previous years I always like to keep a few bits in the present cupboard that I can quickly wrap.  Items that are a little bit of luxury, that don't break the bank & that can be used as last minute gifts at Christmas or birthdays or even to top up the present pile when you discover one person seems to have far more under the tree than everyone else!  Not to mention of course should you find these gifts surplus to requirements.....well they can always conveniently end up under the tree with your name on.  Well Santa's little helper deserves the odd extra treat or two surely?! ;-)

So what items would I pick as suitable multi use presents that can be used for any occasion?  Well I don't think you can ever go wrong with a scented candle & having fallen for The White Company's candles big time & having now smelt the fragrance of their Winter candle I'm adding this to my list of 'must haves' for this time of year as the touches of sweet cinnamon & cloves just smell like Christmas in a candle & I can see this fast becoming a new family festive tradition of having one of these to burn each year.

I also love their 'do small things with great love' slogan & having already brought their canvas shopper earlier in the year I think their matching noteblock is a useful item to have around the home that has great sentiment.  Likewise their sentiment pencils.  Both of these could so easily be given as a family gift or to a girlfriend, teenager as well as a male relative/friend & with us all living such busy lives something that makes us stop & think & stop stressing the small stuff is perfect.  The pencils could even be split from the package & teamed with a small notepad as great little stocking or cracker fillers too.

Another item that makes a great gift is jewellery.  I don't think you'll find many ladies who don't like to receive a new piece to wear.  I've featured this simple solid heart bracelet before on the blog & having seen it in the flesh it really is stunning.

For more unisex gift ideas how about a silver photo frame, something that can easily be given as a joint gift & will always be a welcomed as you can never have enough photos of cherished memories.  Another idea is a cashmere covered hotwater bottle or a leather card holder.  Both being ideal gifts for men or women alike & that little bit of luxury someone perhaps wouldn't consider treating themselves to.

Needless to say The White Company have lots more inspiration & are definitely worth a peek if you're struggling for gift inspiration.  I've including a few other pieces below that will hopefully inspire you & make gorgeous gifts for loved ones.

  1. Hi Jane. Thanks for the tips. I do need a couple of last minute gifts and a couple have caught my eye.
    Looking lovely as usual but can I ask what make and colour your lippy is please? It's a great colour 😊

    1. Hi Lisa glad to know the post has been of help. I'd certainly be lost without the odd present in my cupboard for those last minute gifts.
      My lippy is from Charlotte Tilbury - Red Carpet Red, which has more of a blue undertone than my other red one So Marilyn. I've added the direct link if it's of help http://rstyle.me/n/b9t2drs73e
